No pumpkins for you Linus
May not be many pumpkins this year when Irene blew through the Northeast flooding the pumpkin patches of New York state. So expect higher prices for the orange gourds this year as well as for pies at Thanksgiving. But with a crappy economy and Halloween stuff already on discount (hey got to push Christmas while people still have the bucks and a job ya know) it may be apple pie for both holidays. Poor Linus may have witnessed the Great Pumpkin washed out to sea with the rest of his dreams. And no pie for you. So I guess it's time to get ready for the Zombie Apocalypse when the far right come out to support their candidates. But more on that at a later post.
A quick bright spot - no banks failed this week.
